Bungee Bridge (バンジーブリッジ) was an obstacle introduced in First Stage of SASUKE 18 as part of the renewal after Nagano Makoto's Kanzenseiha in SASUKE 17.

The obstacle was made up of five sections of bungee cords, each of varying size:

  • The first and second section were at the same size.
  • The third section was slightly larger than the previous two.
  • The fourth section was double the size of the third section.
  • The fifth section was half the size of the first and second section.

The cords provided little support and caused a very unstable ground. Competitors are allowed to skip several sections as they wish, but due to the distance of the sections, this was almost impossible.

While the obstacle was designed to eliminate competitors, it was proven to be much easier than anticipated, as no competitor failed on this obstacle. Most competitors would step, fall onto the bungee cords, and crawl to the other side. Nagano Makoto displayed the best approach to the obstacle as he walked across the obstacle, as if it was a sidewalk. Due to this, Bungee Bridge was replaced with a far more difficult obstacle, Half-Pipe Attack, in SASUKE 19.

American Ninja Warrior 4's Bungee Bridge in Northeast and Southeast regions

The Bungee Bridge appeared as the third obstacle in Northeast and Southeast regions on American Ninja Warrior 4, with the number of sections of bungee cords was reduced to four.

Although only a handful of competitors failed on this obstacle, it was notable for eliminating Ryan Stratis during Southeast region qualifiers (when he tripped on the bungee cords, touched the ground mat, and was disqualified), as well as Amos Rendao during Southeast region finals.
